Flowers: March-June.  Plant in light shade.  HxS 10x30cm

Formerly Ranunculus ficaria ‘Brazen Hussy’.  This combination of acid yellow flower and dark mahogany brown leaves is stunning in early spring and great on banks or in wilder areas of the garden. Spreads by underground bulbils and can be invasive so don’t put it in a choice border!  It is summer dormant, usually gone by July, and reasonably well behaved with us, slowly covering a bank. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care and Maintenance.

Celandines can be invasive but this brown-leaved selelction does not seem too bad.  Divide the bulbils after dormancy.
